I remember the towers well, but my own opinion is that they were not really that beautiful as far as buildings go. True, they were impressive in scale and up close the interiors were well appointed and, the facade had a nice shine to it, but other than that they could not have been more plain and uninteresting in terms of design.

They did not have any kind of unique style. They were not like the Empire State Building or the Chrysler Building or the Woolworth building in unique style and individuality.

That having been said, now that they are gone, looking back they are very missed for what they have come to embody in our memories.

My own opinion on rebuilding is that what is put there should include memorials and acknowledgeable to the loss, but it must also be extremely impressive and show strength and resolve. Just like Pearl Harbor was rebuilt and other attacks have always been avenged by rebuilding the loss, even better than it was.

However, I see no such thing in the Freedom Tower.

Whatever should placed on the site, the Freedom Tower as it is now designed is NOT what belongs there. As a symbol of America it's just insulting.

It was stunning - I remember being at a concert in the Plaza about a month before 9/11 and was struck by the sheer impressive size and elegence of the buildings. Great shot.

Beautiful picture. The Twin Towers were awesome. The New York City Skyline is not the same without them. They should be rebuilt.

Really beautiful. Too bad the New World Order Globalists destroyed it through an act of "False Flag Terror"

Built in an era of urban renewal that too often demolished history with the expectation that "new" was better, the beauty of the twin towers was questionable. The monstrous size completely dominated the lower Manhattan skyline resulting in a visual imbalance. Now the Freedom Tower and its environs are being built. It took some time for many to embrace the original World Trade Towers. Will the next structure evoke the same?
